Mr. Speaker, in honour of the upcoming Academy Awards, I would like to offer Reform's nomination for the parliamentary Oscars.
The best dramatic role for a male: the Prime Minister in "The Shawinigan Strangler".
The best dramatic role for a female: the Deputy Prime Minister's tearful performance in "Shooting from the Lip".
The best director: the defence minister in "The Somalia Whitewash".
The best special effects: the Prime Minister's imitation of "Dante's Peak" at the CBC town hall meeting.
The best supportive role in a short comedy: the justice minister in "Airbus".
The best performance by a junior minister: the Secretary of State for Training and Youth in "A Fistful of Dollars".
The best non-performance by an underachiever: the Minister of Health's tobacco saga "The Butt Stops Here".
The best song in an undemocratic nomination feature: "I did it my way" by the Prime Minister again.
The best sports video: the best of all, the entire Liberal team for its role in the golf documentary "True Lies".
